English term or phrase: choo-choo train beatdown
Si tratta dei dialoghi di un videogame.
In città si verificano delle scosse di terremoto perchè nel sottosuolo sta succedendo qualcosa (una sorta di invasione di demoni).
Un personaggio dice questa frase:

Well, that was one serious choo-choo train beatdown if I ever saw one—which, by the way, I never have.
What you got there, Gaby Baby?

Come tradurreste choo-choo train beatdown?

(Avrei qualche dubbio anche su Gaby Baby...)

Grazie
